I have to make myself more handsome.
There are three women in my sights.
1. Artemis, recently discussed here at TSFKA, who although still 'kinda seeing' a floppy vegan, is in regular contact and is coming down with a girlfriend of hers to stay with me not this weekend but the next.
2. Helen of Troy (formerly referred to as 'Chryseus', but that's too obscure) who has recently left a 3-year relationship and I am attempting to be 'there for her'.
3. Pony Girl from the Mallee Desert, discussed on my other blog, who has just returned from overseas without her boyfriend and is now freshly single but living in the Mallee Desert.
All three are mid-20's.
I have such a low opinion of myself these days (because of my age-related looks)that, inspired by the recent works of Christopher Hitchens, who, in Vanity Fair, embarked on a 12 month 'beautifying' regime, I've decided to somehow make myself more handsome by becoming healthier.
But I'm stumbling at the first hurdle. I'm 6 foot tall and weigh 68kg, and even that low weight is distributed poorly. For the past 2 weeks I've been doing weights and stretches and crunches and power-walking almost every night in an attempt to not just build muscle, but gain weight. The problem is, I'm not gaining weight because food just isn't my thing. I LOVE food... once, maybe twice a day. I eat big, once a day. But breakfast is not part of it. I get up at about 7am, and don't feel hungry until 11am. Not just that, I feel nauseated at the thought of food until 11am.
How the hell do people eat breakfast? How do I create an appetite for it?
Lunch and tea is no problem - I eat like a horse. But if I'm to put on weight, good weight (ie: not beer / junkfood weight) I have to eat breakfast... and snack during the day.
Any ideas that aren't "quit smoking"?
In the absence of youthful good looks, I need at least a fit, buff body if I'm to have any chance with these damsels.
